ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Kirk Cousins still says the Washington Redskins are Robert Griffin III's team, but it's a bit more complicated than that.
Cousins on Tuesday elaborated on the topic, saying it's a "tough dynamic" to address while Griffin is out with a dislocated ankle.
Cousins says he has to have his teammates believing he can get the job done and that he has the authority to lead the team. But he says he still stands by his statement the Redskins are ultimately "Robert's team."
Coach Jay Gruden has mostly avoided Cousins-vs.-Griffin scenarios, saying he'll worry about it when the two are healthy. Gruden said Tuesday that "crazy things have happened in the NFL" and that he won't "discount anybody or anything."
The Redskins host the New York Giants Thursday night.
